Medium Weight Curtain Track
A medium weight track is a great all-rounder in the curtain world. Capable of handling most domestic installations, this track is substantial enough to support your curtains yet discreate enough to not dominate a window - after all, it's best to let your curtains do the talking and not the track! This track can hold up to 6kg of curtain weight for up to three metres.
Sometimes you just need some peace of mind when you come to place an order for your blinds. With DotcomBlind’s Right-Size Guarantee you can have just that. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will replace a blind with the correct size if you get the measurements wrong when you order.
Why do I need this Insurance?
We can’t accept returns or provide refunds for blinds that are mismeasured because all of our blinds are made to measure and so the onus is on the customer to get the measurements right for their blinds. Sometimes you might just be having an off-day, get your centimetres and inches mixed up and end up with a blind that is nigh-on useless. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will take that blind back, remake it to the correct size for you and send it back, saving you from having to buy a totally new blind!
How does it work?
✔ Purchase Right-Size Guarantee when you place your order
✔ If one of your blinds has been measured incorrectly, get in touch with us within 14 days and we’ll tell you how to return the blind to us.
✔ Once your blind is with us, we’ll remake it or adjust the blind to your correct measurements and send it back.
✔ Please read our terms and conditions for full details as you will incur additional costs returning the blind to us.

Measuring Curtain Tracks
We’ve made it super easy – just supply us with the width that you wish the track to be and enter it into our website. There are no brackets on the end of our track so we do not need to make any deductions to the track to make it fit. The width measurement you supply is the width that the track will be made to.
We recommend using a metal tape measure to ensure accuracy. For cord drawn tracks please measure the distance from the floor up to where the track will be fitted (this is called the Install Height) so that we are able to ensure the cord will be made to the correct length and in keeping with child safety regulations whilst still be in reach for adults.
This curtain track is available for Next Day Delivery. Order before 11am to have it dispatched the same day to be with you the very next working day. All you have to do is select ‘Next Day Delivery’ when you checkout and we’ll take care of the rest.

To top fix this track, raise the track into the desired position and fix it to the ceiling using appropriate screws. If you're planning on face fixing this track, hold the track in place whilst you mark where to drill for the brackets. Drill the holes, insert the raw plugs and then screw the bracket into place. See below for how to fix your brackets according to whether it is face fix or top fix.
For face fix blinds, once the bracket is in place, close up the hatch on the bracket, covering the screwhead. Click the track into place and secure it with appropriate screws.
